3 INTELLIGENT COMMUNICATIONS Personalizing service lowering costs simplifying the flow of information Avaya IP Office is ready. 3 Avaya IP Office gives auto dealers fast, easy and cost-effective ways to communicate. From the new car showroom to the pre-owned lot, an auto dealership needs fast, easy and cost-effective ways to connect sales and service reps to customers, and to each other. Today, with savvy consumers utilizing the Internet and other tools to shop around, the right communications solution is more important than ever to help build and maintain the profitable relationships that are the key to long-term growth. Buyers choose dealers based on price, reputation and past experience, coupled with the ability to deliver service that is faster, better and focused on their needs and if they don t find all of that, they ll buy from the competition. To meet increasing expectations without increasing costs, auto dealers need solutions that will help them sell more, serve better and do it all less expensively. That s exactly what the Avaya IP Office communications system is designed to do. Fast, focused customer service Cars are big-ticket items and customers who buy them want to be remembered. Dealerships that are known for being service leaders experience more growth and are able to have greater earnings. When your top customers call, can your communications system help to route their calls to the sales rep best able to take care of them? Can you tell instantly if there are any outstanding issues with this customer and what is being done to resolve them? With IP Office you can. IP Office integrates sophisticated customer service capabilities directly into your communications system in ways that were previously not possible in systems designed for small and midsize businesses. With IP Office, when one of your customers calls, a screen pop of information about the customer can be automatically routed with the call, and viewed on the rep s PC screen. Your staff can view detailed customer data, see the status of pending orders and answer queries. You get the ability to deliver the kind of service that keeps customers coming back because the information is there when it matters most when the customer is on the phone. Delivering exceptional service Cars are important to their owners. So is efficiency. Being transferred and having to repeat the same information over and over are frustrating. Your communications system should make it easy for customers to get the information and support they need, when they need it. IP Office gives you a range of call handling, routing, paging and messaging options you can adapt specifically to your dealership. Do you rely on a receptionist to route calls?

With IP Office you can develop a custom solution to your specific needs. IP Office can also automate the handling of routine requests (i.e., tracking the status of a car being serviced) through your messaging system. This can relieve the pressure on your staff and give your customers the flexibility to choose self-serve or deal directly with a service/sales rep. Around the showroom, under the hood staying in touch Auto dealers are unique because employees are often so spread out across different departments down in the service bays, out on the lot, going for test drives, etc. This can leave other customers waiting on the phone.

IP Office is designed to save you money. If you have multiple locations you can route your phone calls over a data link eliminating both local and longdistance toll charges.
